Suzy says, "Mini albums are so easy and fun to make when you have a scrapbook line of products that you love that all go together! I made this album with my new favorite line - City Park. The colors are amazing and the patterns work well for both boys and girls as you can see here (hey, you can use a little pink in a boy book too, right?). I made this for my good friend who has the cutest little six-year-old boy, Charlie. I created one page using two colors of blue felt and zig zag stitched around the edges to hold it together – you can leave an opening so you can use it as a pocket. I also stitched around most of paper on the pages before I attached them to the chipboard. I even added some Boo! to this book – the chipboard borders work great for non-Halloween themes as well. I paper pieced the tree together on the yellow page to mimic a tree on one of the City Park tags. Whenever I use stickers on a project, I always back them with white cardstock and cut them out – this allows me to use pop dots behind them and not have to commit them to paper until I know where I want them. Once I ran out of pictures of Charlie at the park, I left some blank pages for his mom to add in later on another park visit... I hope she likes it!"
I'm sure she'll LOVE it Suzy, I'm sure she will :)
